We’re so excited to announce that Kaur Life is co-sponsoring The Surat Initiative‘s 2020 Sikh Conference!

The theme is “Kaurs & Singhs: Equality & Equity in Sikhi”.

550 years after Guru Nanak Sahib’s birth, we will reflect on the Guru’s message of equality and equity for all, with a particular focus on how patriarchy impacts our workplaces, classrooms, and communities. We will explore Gurbani, history, culture, and current social and political issues. Our goal is to equip young professionals and students with tools and tactics they can use in their lives to build more inclusive and equitable workplaces and communities.

As always, the weekend will be filled with prominent guest speakers, interactive workshops, activities in Manhattan, and our renowned Open-Mic night. We will also have daily divan programs, an evening banquet, and unique opportunities to study Gurbani within a modern context.

Registration for the conference will open on November 23, 2019. Remember that every year our registration list fills up within 24–48 hours, so make sure to mark that date in your calendars. We look forward to seeing you all in New York City this January!
